    Hello!

    I know the answer seems easy because an advertisement is anuncio publicitario. However, I need to translate it together with anuncio de trabajo. Could I use another word to avoid the repetition of the word ad?

    My suggestion: anuncios de trabajo y publicitarios
    job advertisements and other adverts.

    Any other possibilities? I thought about commercials but I'm not talking about adverts on TV but in the press.

    Thanks

    Your translation is good, but you might also consider using "advertisements" and "employment opportunities." The fact that you are advertising employment is already understood.

    I'm talking about text types that my students will deal with, so I think "employent opportunities" wouldn't fit that context, woud it? I think Aztlaniano's suggestions are more suitable.

    Thanks a lot!

    Por cierto, "adverts" se dice en inglés británico, "ads" en inglés americano, "advertisements" en ambos, pero con la tónica en la segunda en el inglés británico, en la tercera en inglés americano, habitualmente.
